03:15 PM ET 10.09 | The Minnesota Vikings are one of the NFL's biggest surprises of the season so far. At 4-1, they lead the NFC North. Minnesota's defense has been particularly effective in the team's red hot start. Rookie cornerback Josh Robinson has passed veteran cornerback Antoine Winfield on the depth chart, and that is alright with Winfield. He told KFAN in Minneapolis that the team wanted Robinson to get more experience and to "take a little off" his plate. "I am in year 14 with these legs," Winfield reminded the host.

I hate this guy....unless he was on my team. 14 years of mileage and he still plays the position better than most guys 10 years younger than him.

Fine with Josh Robinson starting?

No he's not.

But after 14 years, he's learned to say the right things...
